7 Months

The Stats:
  • Height - still 27.5 inches (at home)
  • Weight - 18 lbs (at home)
  • Size 3 diapers
  • Usually 12 month clothing (some 18 month)
  • 2 longer naps; sometimes an early evening catnap
Favorite foods:
  • Avocado
  • Banana chunks
  • Oatmeal w/cinnamon
  • Chicken:)
"New" Tricks:
  • More Babbling
  • Putting Cheerios in his own mouth
  • Pulled himself to standing (ahhh!!!)
  • Looking for us when we disappear from sight
  • On hands and knees- ready to go, just hasn't figured it out yet!
Favorite things to do:
  • Nap in the Beco
  • Play in the bathtub (alone or with siblings)

  • Stand on his back feet and try to crawl (more trying to crawl with Owen HERE)
  • Peek-a-boo
  • Get attention from his siblings;)

  • Play in his food - practice makes perfect and a mess;)
  • Snuggle with Mom and Dad at night
Things we're watching:
  • His finger nails get soo long so fast and are painful
  • Still thinking he is sensitive to "soy", maybe????? so Nate and Momma are avoiding it
  • Drool, but NO teeth... probably in the next 2-3 months;)
  • His little cheeks get soo irritated sometimes :(
  • His digestive system is in transition during the transition to solids... there is no telling what his next diaper will look like
  • What he puts in his mouth


(coupons... helping, right??)

Momma's Thoughts:

Time is going tooo quickly!! I get soo excited to Nate to do a new task, but then my heart breaks over how quickly he is growing up. I have been sooo thankful for the pictures over the months that let me remember the little baby I had in my arms just months ago! And that let me enjoy these sweet days and attempt to capture the little moments that are fleeting!!

And these days are soo much fun as his little personality begins to shine through. I love how inquisitive he is ... he's always trying to get into something, or touch something or watch:)

And his interactions with the older kids... LOL!!! He's starting to giggle when they do... so funny! But he lets us all know when they have crossed the line... he'll cry out LOUD when they are being too rough with him, or he doesn't want to be held. And Nate is LOVING the independence of movement... he's always wanting to be on the floor to practice his new moves;)

Sounds like they like the same food. Carsyn won't eat much though. He just eats a little. Carsyn is 16 pounds at home. Not sure on the height. He is still no where near crawling. He hates tummy time. It is going to be awhile. They still sound very similar though. Hope we can get together after the holidays.
